    One thought on “Death Mage”

    1. Is Prof Croft worth checking out? Negatives:I'll be honest, the series don't stand out much. The world is ok, the protagonist is ok, everything is ok and that's pretty much it. If you want to read something similar I suppose to the Harry Dresden series, only without Harry, then Prof Croft is what you need. The books didn't leave a lasting impression on me and I am not in a hurry to get the fifth one. Positives:Nevertheless, there is some great potential here. The author is a great storyteller, h [...]

    2. Professor Croft's Greatest Challenge and True Legacy Wow, what an ending to Professor Croft's story arc. I normally read this series while listening to the audiobooks, but the audio book for this particular book won't be out for a few months. I had also read all the other books except Purge City, so there are major spoilers in this book. If you have read the earlier novels, Brad takes bits of what seemed like trivial information and tied them all together in a thrilling, dangerous, heartbreaking [...]

    3. The Prof Croft series has been pretty firmly 2nd tier urban fantasy at best from the beginning. The first book was okay, the second book was more of the same, then starting with the third book it started building on itself in a way that was genuinely interesting. This book goes several notches past that with a premise that is not just clever but retroactively makes a lot of otherwise fairly bland stuff from the previous books brilliant in retrospect. At this point I'm eager to see where the seri [...]

    4. This Prof. Croft series has kept entranced from beginning to end. I am so glad that we are not saying goodbye to Croft as a new series develops. I hope more will be written about "The Team." I also would like to see more of Vega's and Croft's relationship developed. This last book in the series pulled all the twisted threads that have been strung out in the others in the series and made a neat braid that is twisted but tidy. Things that we believed as readers were revealed to be not true and thi [...]

    5. Updated opinion since reviewing the first in the seriesWhile there are still similarities between this series and the Dresden Files series, as I had hoped, the characters in this series developed enough, and the stories got even better. So if you are put off at first don't be! I would say they are not as dark or as complex as the world of Butchers books, but still they are fab.

    6. Wow! What a ride! The death mage twists Croft's perception of reality so that he has to doubt everything he's ever known. The essence of evil also invades Manhattan and the populace goes crazy with rioting without purpose. Croft is taken to unfamiliar realms and fights some of the most disgusting creatures ever encountered. Fast paced and fascinating! Had to just keep reading until finished. I will read it again when the audiobook comes out!

    7. A solid piece of urban fantasy The series definitely builds on a lot of the building blocks of the urban fantasy genre, but the characters are likeable (well, the heroes are, the villains are suitably unlikable ) and the story is solid. I look forward to a future where we get to read more about Prof. Croft.

    8. WOWThis was one of the best urban fantasy books I have read. And I read at least 2 each week. Everything you thought was good, turned out to be a lie. A true double bluff.Creative, action packed, thought provoking and leaving you anticipating the next book.

    9. Good!There was a bit of a disconnect between this one and the previous one, just because of the opening. I checked a couple of times to make sure I didn't skip a book. BUT, once I got my bearings, yeehaw!

    10. Another great continuation to the series. A good light read between fantasy series, but has enough weight of its own still.

    11. Never fails!LOVE the Prof Croft series! He's like a modern Indiana Jones! Looking forward to more in this universe from Brad!
